CPS should be exposed for exactly what it is. A baby stealing machine, no one's being protected, but a lot of money is being made from destroying families for profit by adoption.
CPS is the most evil civil agency that has ever exisisted, It''s all about money, money to kidnap the children, money to adopt them out, money for foster parents, it goes on and on, they have to be put in jail, no under the jail!!!
I cannot believe what I am seeing all over the United States where children are being taken away from parents for asking for a second medical opinion that we are all entitled to. Children being taken away for abuse that didn't happen. It blows my mind. Yet I do know someone that had their children taken away and their 2 year old was killed by a foster parent. Heartbreaking.
I have personally been affected by false allegations since my first child (now 26) was 2 yrs old. I have 5 children. Until 3 yrs ago, every accusations made on my name was unsubstantiated. My son, at age 10, was taken out of my home and I lost my parental rights permanently, because my oldest daughter lied thinking she would gain custody of her brother and it back fired. My son was adopted by a family where the wife has serious medical issues They have had my son in a mental health ward for 13 of the 16 months he has been adopted by them. Allowing them to receive a social security check for a young man not in their care. He was never hospitalized nor have any of my children in 26 yrs. Something seriously wrong with this picture.
why is it sometimes that they check out more abuse situations on a girl child than a boy child?
With all the news about child abuse and the corruption of the legal system regarding children, and parents. I would like someone to point me in the direction to expose this in the Leavenworth court system.
No Justice For Steven Ehrman
DOB 7/26/2002
I will try to make this short as possible and still get the point across. My son Steven Chad Ehrman, has been through pure HELL at the hands of his mother. The portion of this story that most concerns me is this, I will begin in 2009. Please keep in mind up till this point of his life he lived in 9 different places, and attended 6 different schools, He was 7.
Jan 16 2009, prior to this date CASA (court appointed special advocate) was appointed to "oversee" the inability of Brandi Henchek/Carter and I to exchange our son peacefully. I was told by Kelly Meyer, CASA coordinator, that I needed to get custody of Steven and do it NOW. She was not able to give me details. I retained Gary Nelson and this date aquired emergency custody. Later I found out that Steven watched his mother run her Jeep Grand Cherokee into a tree, back up, hitting the tree again, then repeats a third time, attempting to commit suicide. Custody was returned to his mother 31 days later, while living with Paul Gallager, (convicted child abuser, against Brandi's oldest son Jessie).
Feb 11 2012, 8:30 pm. Call from Steven stating Brandi was kicking him out of her house, because she received court papers from my attorney. I asked him to calm down and stay there, that I would be there to get him in the morning.
Feb 12 2012, 11 am. Tom Brooks and I go to 2913 MLK dr #2 to pick up Steven. He came out crying, stating his mom, refused him to take his belongings, but that she was kicking him out. Leavenworth P.D. was called. Officers Brown Daniels and Cole.
Feb 13 2012, I took Steven to school and notified the Counselor Ms. Denny, his teacher Ms. Sloan, and the principle of the school, that I was to pick Steven up, due to his mother kicking him out of the house, and that P.D. was notified. At 3:30 when school got out Brandi had already picked him up. Keep in mind she kicked out a 9 year old boy.
Feb 16 2012, Emergency custody hearing; Brandi was a no show.
Feb 21 2012, Emergency custody hearing, Father granted custody.
Feb 22 2012, Steven was made to walk to school, carrying 4 book bags full of his clothes and his skateboard.
Feb 22 2012, Filed a report with P.D. Case # 12-004511. Stating Stevens claim of Brandi making an attempt on his life. Ms. Sloan testified, his counselor wrote a statement, as well as notified SRS. Judge Gunner Sumby stated he would like to see this investigated.
Mar 9 2012, Hearing for change of custody, Brandi did not show.
Apr 2 2012, 12:39 pm Brandi visited Steven at school without incident.
Apr 5 2012, 12:35 pm Brandi visited Steven at school, I received a call from Ms. Sloan, stating Steven was upset and angry after the visit.
Apr 12 2012, 1230 pm Brandi visited with Steven at school and told St
So many families ripped apart. . I am just one of 100000'S
The abuse of power DHS exhibits toward innocent families not only tears families apart but traumatizes children for life. All in the name of "protecting children."
I pray someone finally does something! when our own state Ombudsman who is in charge of child advocacy For a reason can read a cps file that was unsubstantiated and clearly be disgustedand, say that the abuser should be in prison and nowhere near the children but has no power to do anything about it there is definitely a huge problem! we are here to protect our children not do favors for our buddies. Missouri is one of the worst places to raise a child.
The children that are taken are placed with strange foster families and the childs whole world as they knew it, disappears. One only needs to see that when ALL family members are denied placement for these children, something is corrupt. You are punishing the very children you profess to protect, and WE DEMAND this stopped.
My kids were taken 9months ago. In April my two kid's 10 abd 6 were literally ripped from my arms and the only thing I can remember is the look on their face. My job ad a mother is to love and protect and that was taken at that moment due to an acquisition from my aunt and uncle (County Commissioner of San Luis) . Its been this long and not one answer. As to why! Then my boyfriend went to jail a month later and I was getting ready to State appeal my case and the same day I get a call that he had hung himself in jail. I think different and can't get one answer on either case. I've lost my kids, my boyfriend, my house but haven't lost myself and I need justice and answers
i believe every parent should have a parentel rights handbook as soon as they leave the hospital with their baby. cps attorneys shoud have to disclose all the motikons they can file to get their chi,ldren back and barred from practice if they truly neglect to let parents know thier rights.
I am a Grandma, my son was falsely imprisoned by CPS and my grandchildren were kidnapped, are being drugged, mentally,physically,emotionally, and sexually abused while in the hands of CPS,Foster Parents hands. I have proof of this and have been trying to stop it and have my grandchildren returned to me. In doing this unsuccessfully I have told the two Judges that have been overseeing these cases as well as the police, No-one will do anything to stop it or even listen to me. All they ever do is listen to CPS, and laugh at my efforts to represent myself in court. I don't have the luxury of an attorney. I have been to the legal clinics in my city only to be told there is no attorney that will go against CPS, I even went to the public defenders office and they said I was only the grandparent I don't have any rights, and they wouldn't help me. There is so much corruption in the legal system, I am having a very hard time in keeping the faith that the pure evil of CPS will ever stop or retrained. Money corrupts absolutely, and with so many government agencies helping them tear apart our families and hurt our children in such horrific ways, they are not human. JNevada
We Need Change,Now!!

My siblings were taking from my parents before I was born, put into foster care and many of them were abused by the fostercare, and the welfare did nothing but lie as they do often. Now they have my son''s wife's kids in custody, and many times the twins had bruises. These children were not physically abused per se, but the mother is worthless, yet there were noteable changes in her behaviors before the children were taking.
We need to file class action lawsuits against cps in los angeles and riverside county. Every county in every state. Let's get lawyers who will fight for us.
I have proff that the department of human services are guilty off just what these article's are stating the these are some serious allegations and for the past four years I have collected evidence I tried contacting the governors office local police wrote a letter to the judge as well as tried contacting attorneys regarding my suspicion before ever reading any articles I am very certain that if these claims are taken serious in Floyd county is a perfect place to start investigating and I have proof please contact me if interested in this case I have all the proff you would ever need God bless
There are some cases where irresponsible mothers keep having children, like number 5 and give them up. They should have their tubes tied.
Homeschooling is not a valid reason to terrorize someone. Im being terrorized for homeschooling a child who is not even of the legal age to be required to go to school yet! However, Tabitha is already years ahead of kids even three and four years older than she is. These punks breathing down my neck want to choose what doctor I take her to and choose her curriculum. They say they will keep the case open indefinitely just to keep "checking" on me. AGAIN, she's not even old enough to be required to be in school yet! But I've already educated her to a level years ahead.

My children were placed into the custody of my abusive father, his psychotic ex mistress/now wife, and my abusive ex (the children's father). I was the victim of abuse by my children's father. My father and his wife, whom I had cut out of my life, swooped in to take "temporary" custody of my children and then befriended my abuser. The three of them along with Partnership for Strong Families (a privatized CPS for profit with the sheriff of the town a CEO) and Ad Litem, along with DCFS- manipulated and lied, broke laws, trampled my rights, documents forged, lies under oath, intimidating therapists, lawyers, all to take the children of a good mother and never return them.
I was a college student, working on two degrees. On the dean's list consistently for six years while raising two little girls My father and his wife's plan to retire on the child support money (over 15k) while denying my children everything, abusing them and being forced to call her "mommy". I haven't been able to see or talk to my children in over six years. My youngest was still breastfeeding when she was torn from my arms. I don't do drugs, I quit cigarettes cold turkey when I got pregnant, fed my children only healthy organic food, spent all my time that I wasn't in class with them. I am a wonderful mother. I had to quit college two semesters to finish two degrees because of the endless case plan they forced on me. They just kept adding more while harassing and tormenting me maliciously. I am still trying to fight to get my girls back but we are bankrupted by child support and I have already spent over 20k in lawyer fees. The last time I saw a picture of my children was on my ex's Facebook page- they were naked (ages 5 and 7) and sitting in his grandfathers lap (a known pedophile). Over 20 people have tried to file complaints to remove my children from them and have been ignored. My children remain in danger among these vicious and violent sociopaths while the state buries the truth and tries to bury me along with it rather than just admitting they made a mistake by removing my children from my custody and placing them with dangerous monsters.
This is crap.
This corruption needs to stop. We all need to reunite and come together so other innocent families stay together.
Phoenix Arizona cps destroyed my life leaving my kids and I with nothing but shattered dreams and broken hearts all from hearsay and no edvidence
I have been doing studying and researches in my hometown in Laredo Texas. for many years and helping families reunited with their loved ones from the injustice of CPS caseworker false allegations false reports to court judges threatening terrifying manipulating parents against each other to be able to take away the kids at this moment they have interfered in my child custody and allowing mother to have children when there are in danger with her all cuz I help other families there against me we have audio video recording files of CPS doing injustice Thank you kids arent at fault..hopekidsfuture@gmail.com
My son was dragged into his girlfriends open case when their baby was born. Although he had signed a Declaration of Paternity they stripped him of being a parent, denied him a day un court with Family Court for custody and in the long run terminated his rights to her and two additional children due to the mother being unfit and unable to close her case. CPS regional managers admmitted they made mistakes and he was treated unfairly but Offered only "we move forward."
Guilford County in North Carolina requires oversight from outside agency's to hold them accountable to their own policies and procedures.
DSS/CPS needs a SERIOUS OVERHAUL.!!!!! There are way too many children falling in the cracks. The SW are not properly educated and seem to be on witch- hunts for the wrong people while children that ACTUALLY need services don't get them and DIE like my neighbor's BABY BOY!!!!!!!!!!
Sonoma county CPS are on high drive to kidnap children of immediate immigrants. Watch out for Jamie Ott, Commissioner Wheldin. Judge deadbeat Bertoli, and whole rot call CPS.
Cps should be more closure monitored and governed
In the state of TX, many parents are accused of supervisional neglect which gives the state reason enough and the POWER to take custody of each child, easily. Sadly in 2012, more than 1,640 children have died after being taken into CPS custody. CPS improperly investigates parents forcing their way in and unjustly breaks several amendments without being held for the consequences. Stop taking away children from actual loving parents! If this does not stop, there will be protests and justice will be preserved.
Remember Katy Wernecke
cps in houston tx is very corrupt
Amen to that!!! Please help us focused on the truely abused children!
I have seen where a abusive man used these tactics to remove his children from the woman proteting them. He has been abusing them ever since
My children were removed from my home by a cps worker Latoya Sleet of grand rapids,Mi because of lies and went back to court had everything to prove her petition wrong and the case was adjourned for 3 months and my children are now being abused in foster care and i have done nothing wrong. They were removed on Dec 1,2014 I want my twins 3 months old my toddler 2 and my oldest 8 to be back with me. Its not right they can remove your children in false accusations when you have crucial evidence to prove them wrong and my court appointed is not helping
